Sermon Discussion Questions

TMCC May 13-14, 2017 - Church is Courageous Compassion; Pastor Randy Youngblood

  1. Read Acts 4:32-37.  How can you recognize a believer?
  2. How would you define the believers unity? 
  3. Randy mentioned that it is not our commitment to activities that demonstrate our faith, but that our commitment to people is what we should be striving for.  What does Randy mean by activities? Are there activities in your life that are replacing your commitment to people?
  4. How do you define courage?
    Randy defined it as taking something we think we need and giving it to someone else? Do you agree with this definition?
  5. How does doing church take courage?  How does unity take courage?
  6. Referring to Acts 4 as well as Acts 2:44-45 what can you learn from the apostles' generosity?
  7. How is our giving an expression of our faith?
  8. What can we do this week to demonstrate courageous compassion? How can we make outreach a way of life and not just a one time random occurrences?
    Randy's next steps
    How You Can Have Courageous Compassion:
    1. Ask God to show you needs around you
    2. Have the courage to care (feel the needs of other people and do something about them)
    3. Intentionally bless someone (off campus)
    4. Start a connect group
